Imagine waking up every morning feeling as though you live in a luxury resort. Scientific research has shown how colors influence our moods and wellbeing, and fortunately we do have the capability to transform our bedroom colors to channel a tropical paradise vibe and make us feel better. What better way to improve relaxation than to recreate a peaceful environment in our homes?

Tropical resorts are some of my favorite places to get design inspiration for my home, even if it is as simple as a new color palette. I want to recreate a similar environment that exudes the same sense of rest and relaxation. While I can’t remodel my studio condominium into a five-star villa, I can redo a few things to get a similar atmosphere. 

Read on and steal these palettes for scrumptious bedroom colors!

Wood plays a very significant role in tropical architecture, sometimes being the predominant element used in buildings. Brown shades should never be dull and muddy, but instead they should be vibrant and rich to make the interiors feel alive.  

In addition to using natural wood in your homes, you can also add similar shades of brown into your bedroom color palette. Choose warm shades that can enhance natural light and bring life into the room.

Contrasting earthy tones with white help bring out the best in both colors. Monochromatic white on its own can look too sterile when not done well, and should instead be complemented with other colors. 

Wooden shades help to keep bedroom colors more lively as it reminds us of our innate connection to nature. White can also reflect light and brighten up the room, both literally and figuratively. 

Bring the Colors of Nature In

Gardens and bodies of water are always an integral part of tropical architecture. For those living in apartments and condominiums, bringing in houseplants can be the obvious choice, but it is not necessarily the most practical one. 

Another option for would be to integrate complementary shades of greens and blues that look natural and modern. These bedroom color ideas can be suitable as bedroom colors if thought out properly; you can even use these colors to paint  patterns inspired by nature. 

Use Dark Colors Wisely

Stones have been used in landscaping as a way to bring a sense of peace, such as the zen gardens in Japan. Tropical architecture often use darker stones, and they sometimes use similar dark colors in tiles for pools and bathrooms.  

Cool and natural dark shades can modernize the tropical aesthetic and bring about a similar effect as stone gardens when used as bedroom colors. Black will not look drab when used minimally and matched well with the surrounding shades in the bedroom.
